The Hunger Crisis in the Horn of Africa
It is already being considered the world’s next crisis, and one that could possibly exceed the conflict in Syria. The Horn of Africa, which includes the countries of Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Djibouti, is suffering from the worst drought in years which has resulted in insufficient harvest and crops for a region of the world already struggling with high rates of malnutrition.
According to UNICEF, over 2.3 million people are facing food shortages in Somalia alone. While the unprecedented humanitarian issue worsens, little attention has been paid to the suffering taking place in the region. Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) has been monitoring the issue closely and is mobilizing distribution of food aid through partnerships based in Ethiopia.
For only $50, you can provide a month’s worth of food to an entire family and bring emergency relief to the Horn of Africa.
